I love his plants! If I can't get something locally, his starter plants are such a good deal. Many of his plants are Proven Winners or other famous names (and a few neat edibles) and he grows them well. He intends you to plant them in the ground. My only minor problem is that if you are new to growing out baby plants there are no directions for potting on. I killed several before I found a different website that suggested using cactus mix or other quick draining mix with slow release fertilizer, but NOT potting soil. It was certainly not his fault that I did not know enough and chose to pot them on instead of in the ground. I would highly recommend him and his plants. In fact I have ordered around 30 plants from him in numerous orders.

Wow! I was looking for a camellia and they have huge selection and the newest ones, but the one I wanting was out of stock. I called them and even though they were cleaning up following a hurricane's rearranging their stock, they took time to find the camellia I wanted! I ended up buying 4 camellias from them and the quality, price and shipping were just as amazing as the service! As of this writing the price was around $15 for a 12-18 inch camellia (plus shipping and handling). They also had many other kinds of plants. I highly recommend them!

Just letting people know, that according to their website, this business has closed. However, they do have links & recommendations of other potato suppliers.

Pastelegance root was as big as my head!

Being a Landscape Architect I budget for contingency planting (a 30% die-off is often the case). I was delighted when I opened the sturdy package to receive a large healthy root.

Will be ordering other varieties soon, thank you.

Shirley is a fantastic hybridiser and I thoroughly enjoyed purchasing irises from hers (and Lens) farm in Burra, NSW. I highly recommend visiting if you can (With notice your her of course) and purchasing from her online store is easy.

By Sandsock on Oct 27, 2020 4:50 PM, concerning BloomingBulb:

I saw that 1 order was not true to name, but close.
I ordered a number of bulbs and 2 peonies. 1 peony only had 1 eye instead of 2-3 eyes. I contacted Blooming Bulb and they got back to me within 2 days stating that a replacement is on it's way. Good customer service

By jathton on Oct 6, 2020 10:45 AM, concerning FRITZ BAHR'S COMMERCIAL FLORICULTURE:

Fritz Bahr's Commercial Floriculture is a fascinating look at how the floriculture industry worked in the early parts of the Twentieth Century. Published in 1922, it strove to help florists improve their business, especially during periods when cut flower sales were not a high priority for consumers.
Bahr spends time talking about trends in the business, the best kinds of equipment to have and the practical side of greenhouse management. He then takes things a step further when he begins recommending branching out into other aspects of the horticulture trade.

Bahr was a practical businessman, giving practical advice, but he also had a passionate side. In the introduction he is careful to point out that, "To be gardeners, to enjoy and appreciate the chance to work among living plants, should help make us better men, with a higher conception of our responsibilities and duties in life, a keener realization of life itself, a greater consideration for the rights of all our fellow men, and a deeper sense of gratefulness."

He also had a whimsical side... recommending plants that will either amuse or horrify contemporary gardeners and professionals.
He recommends the Castor Bean to florists because, "...it is highly ornamental for the filling of large beds or for sub-tropical plantings."
He suggests growing Hostas, "...for which the country florist in particular will find plenty of use."
He advocates growing Japanese Maples in pots because, "... these Maples make most showy pot plants in early spring. They are, therefore, desirable decorative material for the retailer."
My personal favorite, however, is his comment about Kudzu Vine. He says, "... easily grown from seed sown inside in March. This will give strong 3.5 inch pot plants by the middle of May, which if planted out, will make fifteen feet of growth or more the first season."
This is a fun and educational book to explore.

By Sandsock on Oct 2, 2020 9:52 AM, concerning Homestead Farms Nursery:

I wanted both Peonies and Daylilies, since they dig daylilies fresh I could order in the fall and get both. The peony roots are huge with 7 eyes each (Usually 3-5), but at about 1/2 the price of some other places. The daylilies are fresh and big and a lovely selection. It was nice to have shipping combined for both things.

By midwestgal on Sep 28, 2020 10:18 AM, concerning McKay Nursery Company:

5 star experience and product! I am a beginner gardener and found McKay's website easy to navigate and informative. I find buying online sort of intimidating, but they even offer a one year guarantee on their plants! They had helpful pictures showcasing their products. My plants arrived bigger and better than what the pictures described and the packaging was extremely secure! I will definitely be ordering from them again!

By Topdecker on Sep 26, 2020 8:56 PM, concerning Fieldstone Gardens, Inc.:

I've shopped with them once and almost certainly will order again. They delivered a pair of uncommon peony roots that were of excellent size and substance and they were very timely in shipping well packaged roots.
